Joshua Trees, Rusty Stuff, and a Ghost Town

Three of my favorite things! My next stop was Yucca Valley, CA, where I saw all three! First off was a hike in Joshua Tree National Park.

This is my favorite hike in the park. The first big attraction is this old pink house.

Lots of old pieces of the past are lying around.

Next up is a rusty old car, which I tried to drive.

And farther down the trail, another rusty car. My favorite, half buried in the sand...

We finally get to our destination, the Wall Street Mill.

We walked around the back -

And into the interior of the mill. Just fascinating!

The next day, I drove out to see Pioneer Town, just outside of Yucca Valley.

It's not really a ghost town. It was built in 1946 as a movie set.

Roy Rogers was one of the original investors. They have entertainment on the weekends -

But during the week, it's a pretty sleepy town. This was the only new friend I met...

The Bath House is definitely my favorite building.

A fun stop! Next up - Halloween!
